It’s a match made in Anglophile heaven.
“Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch and “Downton Abbey” star Laura Carmichael were spotted together at a Lady Gaga show, spurring rumors that they may be dating.
The Daily Mail reports that the pair looked “far from boring” and “appeared to really let their hair down” togetehr at the Roundhouse show in London on Sunday, September 1.
Cumberbatch and Carmichael were photographed smiling and chatting at the bar before watching the show.
“Laura and Benedict clearly get along like a house on fire and they were seen laughing away together as they hung around the bar enjoying a few drinks,” the Daily Mail writes.
Cumberbatch has been single since breaking up with his girlfriend of 12 years, Olivia Poulet in 2010.
However, he has been linked to a number of women since the split, especially this summer.
He was recently rumored to be dating Russian model Katia Elizarova after being spotted kissing her at a wedding that he officiated. However, Elizarova denied the rumors, saying that she has a boyfriend and is close friends with Cumberbatch, who has encouraged her as she begins her acting career.
“I know the pictures look intimate but it’s all innocent,” Elizarova said.
“It looks like we are having a sexy chat, but we were actually discussing what we were going to have off the restaurant menu.”
Elizarova revealed that they met at the Serpentine Gallery summer party in London two years ago.
“I want to be a serious actress so I need all the guidance I can get,” she said. “Benedict is very supportive and gives me lots of tips.”
Elizarova previously revealed that Cumberbatch gave her acting lessons for her stage debut in “Sunstroke.”
“I’ve no theatrical experience, although I have done film,” Elizarova said. “They gave me the role because I am so Russian. We have a tendency to traumatize everything and have a reputation for being quite dark.”
“I have just got my script and began rehearsals. Ben has been a great help, but he is very strict,” she added.© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
